I love Woodpeckers, but that seems a little pricy to me. I normally just use my Irvin quick clamps and some wooden cauls. I guess maybe i’m doing it wrong! LOL!

Arrgh.
At least they are made in the USA.

I need to get a supplier contract with these guys. Maybe they need some clamps that work upside down, or in the rain, or on a triangle, or something…...

Looks like a couple of notched blocks, and your trusty Kreg vise clamp would work about the same!! These are pricey!!

Seems like you could do the same thing with a couple of handscrews by just dadoing a slot between the screws on each jaw. It’s a great idea though!

‘scuse me. I need to go to the shop and dig out my handscrews . . .

Cheers!

Wait, wait..we should pool our resources to provide “custom made” clamping cauls. Customer orders length and width, shipped within 60 days. (Customer supplies clamps) If we all work together I bet we could beat the price.

I don’t know… do you think we could have the clearance groove to straddle the glue joint ? That’s the real FEATURE we’re up against. ;=)

nice idea, silly though that it requires regular clamps in the end anyway. you could easily make something similar out of wood since the knobs are only there to keep the 2 parts together, the groove at the level of the joint for glue squeeze out is a good idea.
